In a world where technology reigns and evil is plotting to bum rush the population through terrorism and corrupt influences, Paul Roman saves the day.
Roman, who makes his debut in “Orange Peel,” a 40-page online comic, is not your typical superhero.

His home is a planet called Godderth, and he drives a sleek and sporty automobile, known as the Orange Peel.
Clad in an orange jumpsuit with the number three covering the chest, he’s a futuristic, pro-life evangelist and superhero who spends most of his time trying to share the gospel with the bad guys, the Red Menace.
The product of 20 years of doubt and trial and error, “Orange Peel” is the brainchild of Dan Lawlis.
“The first time I considered doing a comic book with a Christian character was over 20 years ago,” he said on his website.
“I wasn’t ready spiritually in any way to do that back then. Sometimes I’m not sure I am now. That was actually one of the most difficult things to overcome in the creation of this comic book, was feeling that I’m unworthy. Who am I to teach anyone about Christianity? However, over the years, I slowly realized that if I was going to be waiting for myself to become perfect to create a Christian comic then it was never going to happen.”
Lawlis, who has worked for Marvel and DC Comics and done advertorial work, also said he created Roman and the alternate reality of Godderth because there was a gap in the market.
On his website, Lawlis said, “I didn’t see any professional comic book artists that were creating mainstream Christian superheroes. So I started to think maybe, imperfect though I maybe, I might just be the guy for the job.”
Though Lawlis is the first to admit that his comic isn’t perfect, he’s seeking feedback and support from the pro-life community, according to Lifesitenews.
